Nameless Considering Derby currently have Wayne Rooney playing for them I'm not sure this Leeds signing even classifies as the biggest signing this season.
It seems pretty much like us signing Royston Drenthe....

Not sure what Rooney has done so far, can anyone let me know?


well he's played a couple of games at least, your 'greatest signing in the history of the championship' hasn't even set foot on a pitch yet.

And yet he has arguably contributed more than Wayne Rooney has thus far for Derby County.

Well Rooney has an assist, so he has contributed to a goal.

Old Man Andrews Leeds have made what is arguably the greatest signing in Championship history.

https://www.leeds-live.co.uk/sport/leed ... r-17487435

Doesn't exactly have a great goal scoring record.


Did very well with Leipzig a couple of years back but really tailed off. This could be the move to revitalise him as there is a very decent player in there.

So Wayne Rooney, former England captain, multi capped, multi trophy winning , record goalscorer for England and Man Utd is not a bigger signing than a chap who did OK for Leipzig a few years ago and might have a decent player inside him.
OK.

You can see why people treat Leeds fans as a bit of a joke.....

Biggest ever signing in the Championship was Jason Roberts - with the subsequent CHAMPIONSHIP track record to prove it.

Not really, Given it was debunked within minutes without even an attempt to back up the claim I think the matter is concluded.

No it was debated by those capable of doing so.

Fair play to Leeds - that is the sort of fight back that should see them push on now.

WBA continue to go backwards. Forest will be sniffing a chance after their excellent win at Brentford.
